    Don't work through your whole week.So work for like 5-6 days a week. Leave an Evening in the weekdays and either Sat/Sun to go out of just chill at home. Obviously it will change when exam season starts.
    How early did you start revising, and how early do you recommend revising, september?

    Hey, I want to do bio, Chem, sociaology and media studies for Alevels. What are your opinions on these choices. Also, how did you manage your revision?

    Did you have a job in sixth form or know anyone who did? If yes how did they cope with it , did it effect their grades ect? Im looking to get a weekend job but worried about coping with Bio, Chem , Econ and Phych
    A part time job is fine if you can manage your time. If your like me and do most of your homework and etc in the weekends then don't do it. If you do them after school or in your frees then thats fine. The last thing you want is to feel like your unable to balance them. So do try a weekend job but if you feel like your tired after shifts and can't do any work or don't have time, then just quit. Most of my friends did not have a part time job but one person did he did not do good but tbh other factors (Laziness etc) did contribute. You can maybe get a summer job or christmas job instead.

    It's hard with the new a-levels so your textbooks are really your only reliable resource,old resources are still relevant but always confirm with the spec or textbook. But a few Shoutouts- Maths-if your doing MEI OCR then I recommend Jack Brown youtube channel. Chemistry- any exam board- Chemrevise (life saver but haven't used it yet, don't know why). Psychology- SimplyPsychology and Loopa

    They're good but a bit mismatched. If it coordinates with you degree choice and you enjoy it then GO AHEAD and ENJOY!

    Hi, I currently go to a state school. But I've gotten the chance to go to a grammar one for sixth form but I just don't know which one to pick!! At my current school I get to do 3 alevels and one As whereas at the grammar school I do 3 alevels. I want to do bio Chem and rs at the grammar and bio chem media and sociology at my current! ( have to pick different options due to them not fitting in the option blocks) The pros of me going to my current school is:Pros of The state school are its near my house, know the teachers so if I get stuck then I'll have a bit of banter work my magic and get the answers, comfortable and I don't know At the grammar school i might be the dumbest. Now the pros of the grammar are its a grammar school, different place, new people and could I don't know yet but may have a better science department the my current school does. Thank you pls reply

    OP, as someone in your year, I'd be interested in how you allocated your time in the 3 months or so leading up to exams?

    When did you finish the contents of your subjects and when did official revision for your exams begin?
    Also when did you start doing past papers, before or after you finish learning your AS?
    Do you think it's better to do past papers by topic or as one?
    What's the best thing to do during the first couple of months, people often regret not doing much?
